Re: EZ Test for 4041

I dare say back in 1982 when the 4041 was introduced they had no idea that anyone would still be wanting to use one nearly 40 years later.
Small tape drives for use as 'flexible/versatile' read/write storage were a common feature back then as well.
There are some ROMs in the ROM carrier but will have to dig the hardware out to check exactly what is in there. Given there is another 4041 close at hand (Stephen's post was a surprise in more ways than one-not seen him since engineering school) I will hold off on the parting out process at this stage but should I proceed with that and have anything you are interested in available, I'll get back to you.

It is hard for me to understand why Tektronix did not include a small boot ROM to get the instrument up and running. Why boot from mag tape which is notorious for weak signals after a few years of sitting around?
There are two things that I still need for my 4041. I need a 160K memory card, and the ROM04. If you have either of these, I am interested to purchase them.
